These days, freight trains do not typically (in general) run on a schedule. However, there are exceptions...at least to some extent! BNSF runs a single Z-Train into and out of Denver. The ZDENCHI and ZCHIDEN consist of COFC and TOFC cars (including UP trailers). The ZDENCHI departs Rennicks Yard each morning usually around 8:30am. If Amtrak is on time, this is usually right after it departs. On this Saturday morning, Amtrak was running late. As a result, the Z-Train is approaching a restricting signal at west Irondale. It will have to wait about 15 minutes for the tardy Zephyr to show up.
